It helps implement conditional access policies to restrict mobile users from accessing potentially dangerous emails.The aspects I find most valuable are the managing the data and applications. I can also restrict the users to install any applications. I can also wipe the data if the phone was missplaced or stolen. These are the basics for me.It is a very helpful solution.We have a BYOD policy, and this solution helps us manage our devices.It is a helpful tool to manage BYOD policies.In terms of technical support, you will get an immediate response.It's really easy to access....Intune itself integrates with that entire Microsoft ecosystem.

Intune should be much more granular in terms of supporting more Android cellular devices.I think there should be a better tracking of the cell phones used on the Intune.I think that there is room for improvement with the reporting. If this is done, it will be a better product.There are a few security features that are not available in Microsoft Intune, when compared to other products.There are a couple of issues with stability.I would like to see micro VPN. I like the way that some of the other providers have done something similar where, as you open that app on an end-point device, it creates a micro VPN straight into your device, which is quite a nice little feature. Also, Microsoft Intune relies heavily on its fellow products in the suite. It would be nice if Microsoft Intune could stand on its own two feet.It needs incorporation of Knox, ZeroTouch, etc.It needs certificate provisioning for S/MIME purposes.
